Dirt cheap at the moment from this seller, probably shifting the last of their stock but a great price for a 1440 ultrawide as long as you don't need multiple HDMI ports or gaming enhancements

Fantastic deal, great find!

60zzz no way remember it's 2017 if ur into games

Crazy good price..

Must gold out for black Friday!!!

That's got everything I want bar freesync, really tempted but I don't know if I will miss freesync too much. A 1440p IPS ultrawide for this money is a hell of a deal though, if I hold out for black friday I might regret not grabbing one when I had the chance.

I've seen around Reddit that this can be pushed to 80hz. Also for this price you're not getting anything fancy for refresh rate.

You should probably remember the year even if you aren't into games.

Would be pretty good for work If I hadn't just got a monitor a month or so ago.

People forget that overclocking monitors is a thing and can really help if you're good at it, so thanks for telling everyone

OCUK lists this as 80hz when using display port.

Out of curiosity, what sort of GPU would you need to hit 80fps 3440x1440? Counter strike'll be fine, but let's say Witcher 3 on a high preset

Probably a 1080ti, 1080 at a stretch.

I wonder how this compares to the ElectriQ 34" 2K !

Called them, said they had no stock

I'm running a PG348Q with a Strixc 1080Ti OC and hits 100FPS in some games but games like PubG i'm about 80fps ! BF1 i get about 90 - 100 all ultra settings.

Laptops direct are dishonest.

They had a monitor listed that was probably a pricing error, the day it was sposed to be delivered I got an email saying the monitor was no longer being sold by their supplier (the monitor now had an out of stock logo on). 2 weeks later I get an email saying I have been refunded, and the monitor is magically back available for order on their site, except this time £400 more than it had previously been listed at.

I ordered before posting this deal, due for delivery tomorrow and apparently dispatched according to the order tracker, fingers crossed it's all genuine.

Wouldn't mind an ultrawide but PS4 doesn't support it

was going to drop £500 odd on a LG 34 ultrawide, but at this price this looks decent, if it it looks like its from 2005.

Most monitors can be 'overclocked' by forcing the display to higher clock speeds. I can get 85Hz out of my '60Hz' UWQHD display, and that's using a 5m DP cable. If I use a shorter 1.5m cable, I can push it to 100Hz.

Considering my Geforce 1070 manages about 70-80fps sustained on Ultra at 3440x1440 in most games. I normally run the monitor at 75Hz, and that is more than smooth enough for me.

The beauty of a large UW screen is how enveloped you get in the action.
Thoroughly recommended if you've got the PC spec to push it.

I have the x34a which ocs to 100hz. I have a GTX 1080 and on gears 4 I get something like 85fps on ultra and destiny 2 I get about 70.

I usually play on high or medium and try get the full FPS when im playing competitively.

I bought mine for £675 which was an absolute steal as mine is gsync. This is great value even without gsync. The x34a would be around the £900 mark so this is good value. Hot from me....

P.s. I have an i5 3570k oc'd at 4ghz and that may be the bottleneck for my FPS.... I know for sure a better CPU would give me more frames on these CPU intensive games like gow4.

83CM wide. That's ultra-wide indeed

It's not a bad price, but you can (or could when I bought mine a few months ago at least) get a monitor with 144Hz and Freesync (although not ultrawide admittedly) for £50 more I'd personally opt for that.

Actually I'm talking crap, it was a 27 inch I got, not 34. I should learn to read.

Heat for the price.

There is literally nothing about this resolution where '2K' makes any sense.

I hate that term anyways. Means completely different things to different people.

I can confirm that my order placed yesterday has been collected by DPD and is on its way for delivery today and I have my 1 hour delivery slot confirmed, so this looks to be 100% genuine if anybody had concerns.

I'll let you know if everything is still good later once it's been received and unpacked.

What reason did you have to think it's not legit? I see zero.

It's great and actually has 2x HDMI instead of 1x as listed

great stuff, how the picture quality? considering upgrading from 29 ultrawide...

I think one is HDMI, another is HDMI with MHL.
